The purpose of the database is to provide parameter values for use in environmental radiological assessments to estimate the transfer of radioactivity to non-human biota (i.e. ‘wildlife’). The database has been initiated to aid both: (i) the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in the production of a handbook on non-human biota transfer parameters (to be published as an IAEA Technical Report Series); and (ii) the derivation of transfer parameter values for the International Commission on Radiological Protections (ICRP) list of Reference Animals and Plants (RAPs). The database is being compiled in collaboration with the International Union of Radioecologists (IUR) and it is hoped that it will provide a future and evolving source of up to date information to those conducting assessments and developing/maintaining models. All contributors to the database will be acknowledged in the IAEA Technical Report Series publication (final draft due early 2010).
